City Paper is not for tourists
The trailer for sitcom H Street has appeared, but woe be unto you if you think a show called H Street and based around H Street brunch hub the Argonaut would be about H Street.
“That Seventies Show wasn’t about the seventies and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia had little to do with Philadelphia or its always wonderful weather,” writes Joel Nykyforchyn-Clark, one of the show’s creators, on his blog. Later, Nykyforchyn-Clark praises the “vibe and diversity and ‘edginess’ of the area.”
Nykyforchyn-Clark writes that the first episode will premiere online after being shown at some festivals. The trailer features a robbery at the Argonaut and a “sitcom within a sitcom.” Sounds ambitious, but I can’t help but prefer the kickball and black Israelite-heavy original episode plan.
